Went to the Hanalei Farmer's Market and watched a local jeweler string delicate, native-to-Kauai shells.
David was thrilled to find truly local food at one stand.
|Miss Bloggette bought a single strand of multi-colored shells.|
The Boss bought earrings as a gift.
....and now I'm going to string along a whole bunch of photos!
|Curried Tofu made by 2 "local ladies" from Bali.|
|Miss Bloggette had Balinese Chicken.|
It was windy and we opted for the pool...
Sunday (Father's Day) also brought windy conditions...
So we headed off to the southernmost and the westernmost sides of Kauai.
|Miss Bloggette almost got blown over taking this picture.|
|David on the southern tip of the island.|
Jumped in the car and discovered an "ancient" Japanese cemetery.
|Moss-covered, weather-worn tombstones.|
Headed to Poipu...where most of the resorts are.
Had a great lunch @ The Beach House on Lawai Bay.
|The unbelievably beautiful view at lunch.|
|Best, whitest swordfish The Boss has ever had!|
....and we're off to the westernmost "Barking Sands Beach"...
but as advertised, the only way in was 5 miles of washboard...
So we turned around and hit every local's beach we encountered...
All packed with native Hawaiians celebrating Father's Day with friends and families.
|David made friends with these guys and we shared food and laughs.|
|A portion of Salt Pond Beach.|
|Westside beach near where Captain Cook landed.|
Visited the Kauai Coffee Company and did some sampling.
|Interesting: How coffee is "made"|
Oh, why not cruise Lihue (the main city)..
Oh, why not check out Cafe Portofino (at the Marriott) where The Boss has connections...
|Kalapaki Beach @ the Marriott|
|Incredible View from Cafe Portofino @ the Marriott|
|Unplanned!! David meets up with the ABQ friends!|
AND NOW LET'S END with the ubiquitous roosters that inhabit Kauai.
